@JayDengVC  Yeah, right, except one is approved by the FDA for this treatment and the other is not (because the company don't want to get it approve, as they would have to charge the same price).


So you give vouchers, and people spend it on the $2,000 stuff. They can shop around, of course, but since only genentech makes this drug (and has the patents on it), then they won't get any significantly cheaper price. 


However, because they are individual with vouchers instead of the government footing the bill for millions of medicare patients, then they have zero leverage. So now the $2,000 stuff gets to $5,000.

Worst use of the word "disrupt" in a headline. What airbnb is "disrupting" is the hotel business industry, maybe. But, like uber, it doesn't mean they should avoid regulation or paying the same taxes as their competition. The SF hotel tax serves a valuable purpose http://www.sfgfta.org/ (and it even makes sense that the tourist subsidize the arts that make the city attractive to tourists!)

$39/mo would sure buy you a lot of lego. This does not make any sense. Who spends $500/years on lego?
